August, 2016 - LISBOA, PORTUGAL - POST 1 OF 4

We take two and a half days to explore the city and a day trip to Sintra.  Very good direct bus from the Marina to the old city, but lots of roadwork and very narrow streets slows progress in the old parts.  Not a place to tour by car.

Day one saw us take in a church, cathedral and the Castle of St George.  A full day including a very good lunch at a small restaurant in the old city, near the Cathedral.

Main gate off the downtown riverside square.
Riverside main square.

Church undergoing major renovation near the river.

The Cathedral.

St George, the dragon slayer.

The castle has the best views of the city.  Worth the climb and lineup.

A little wining.

A great lunch.
